The African Development Bank will finance $25 billion by 2025 to support Africa's fight against climate change, the bank's president said at the bank's annual meeting in Accra, Ghana.
He noted that climate change has had many negative impacts on the continent, causing natural disasters such as droughts, cyclones, and floods. Climate change costs Africa between $7 billion and $15 billion a year. "Africa has no choice but to address climate change."
To ensure Africa's food supply, the African Development Bank has delivered climate-friendly seeds to 12 million farmers in 27 countries in the past two years under the "Technology for Agricultural Change in Africa" program, he said.
In the area of renewable energy, the African Development Bank is implementing a $20 billion "Desert Power" initiative in the Sahel that is expected to power 250 million people, he said.
US President Joe Biden recently wrapped up his five-day trip to Asia with a summit of leaders of the "Quad" security Dialogue.
Biden has promoted a number of economic and security cooperation initiatives during his visit aimed at deepening ties with Indo-Pacific Allies and partners in response to China's growing influence in the region. Some analysts in the United States believe the most significant announcement may be an initiative to share maritime information to combat illegal activities. But other experts say Biden's move sets a good framework for more security cooperation, though it remains to be seen whether concrete action will follow.
Affected by several factors, the supply of the vanadium nitride powder is erratic and thus its prices are expected to go higher in the future.
Vanadium nitride or VN, is a compound of vanadium and nitrogen. It is a black cubic crystal powder with molecular weight of 64.95.
Vanadium nitride forms and increases wear resistance in the nitriding process of steel. In the nitriding process, another phase V2N, also known as vanadium nitride, can be formed with VN. VN has cubic rock salt structure. There is also a cryogenic form that contains V4 clusters. When the energy of the vibration mode in the high temperature NaCl structure phase decreases below zero, the low temperature phase is caused by dynamic instability.
It is a strong coupling superconductor. Nanocrystalline vanadium nitride is said to have the potential to be used in supercapacitors. The properties of vanadium nitride are sensitively determined by the stoichiometry of the material.
Vanadium nitride is a new type of alloy additive, which can replace ferrovanadium in the production of microalloyed steel. The addition of vanadium nitride to steel can improve the comprehensive mechanical properties of steel, such as strength, toughness, ductility and thermal fatigue resistance, and make the steel have good weldability. At the same strength, the addition of vanadium nitride saves the amount of vanadium by 30-40%, thus reducing the cost. Vanadium-nitrogen alloy can be used in structural steel, tool steel, pipe steel, steel bar and cast iron. The application of vanadium-nitrogen alloy in high strength low alloy steel can carry out effective vanadium and nitrogen microalloying at the same time, promote the precipitation of carbon, vanadium and nitrogen compounds in steel, and play a more effective role in sedimentation strengthening and grain refinement.
What is Vanadium Nitride VN Used For?
Vanadium nitride is a better steelmaking additive than high vanadium iron. Using vanadium nitride as additive, the nitrogen composition in vanadium nitride can promote the precipitation of vanadium after hot working and make the precipitated particles finer, so as to improve the weldability and formability of steel.
Used as cemented carbide raw materials, the production of wear-resistant and semiconductor films.
It is a new and efficient vanadium alloy additive, which can be used to produce high strength low alloy steel products such as high strength welded steel, non-quenched and tempered steel, high speed tool steel, high strength pipeline steel and so on.

For Germany, the largest economy in Europe, the impact of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict on the natural gas market is the most obvious. This also exposed the serious dependence of some German industrial enterprises on Russian natural gas. Some analysts pointed out that the instability of natural gas supply has had a big impact on the German economy and threatened its market competitiveness because alternative energy supplies will not be cheap and difficult to come quickly. Increased uncertainty over natural gas supplies is putting enormous pressure on German manufacturers in sectors ranging from steelmaking to chemical vanadium nitride powder for the time being, but the market demand for vanadium nitride powder in the future will also change with the influence of various external factors. If you need vanadium nitride powder, please feel free to contact us.
